Our dental professionals know that – although your teeth will naturally gain that slight shade of yellow, there are ways to safeguard against any extreme staining.
Stain-causing food can be easily absorbed into your porous teeth. As “solid” as your teeth appear to the naked eye, under the inspection of a microscope, you can see how spongy your teeth actually are. Not only the flat surface of your teeth, but the corners, crevices and crannies as well.
Even if the surface of your teeth retain a white gleam, these nooks and crannies can also provide a place where food debris can create a yellowing appearance. Dark stains between your teeth are just as unsightly (or increasingly so) than overall yellowing teeth.
Out of this lineup: coffee, tea, dark carbonated beverages, red wine, beets, blueberries, soy sauce, or smoking …which one do you think is the worse of the bunch for staining your teeth? Pop! Yes …those darkly coloured, carbonated beverages you consume contain acids that open up your porous teeth and the cracks and crevices that surround them, and begins the staining process rapidly.
Tobacco is also high on the list, especially if you are a regular smoker. The more your teeth are exposed to a staining substance, and for longer durations of time …the increased potential staining will occur.
It only takes 7 minutes for the stain causing effects to begin, so if you can’t get to a toothbrush, or consume any crunchy fruits or veggies …rinse with plain water, or pop a piece of gum to activate your cleansing saliva, and keep your mouth and teeth as free from stain-causing properties as possible.

Our Teeth Whitening Services
The Spa-dent whitening process provides the maximum whitening benefit in the least amount of time with virtually no sensitivity, all under the supervision of your Dental Professional. The revolutionary gel formulation is placed in the dual arch mouth trays with the precise dosage of whitening material. The unique blue and red LED light activates the gel, providing powerful whitening with cellular stimulation. Hydroxyl radicals penetrate the tooth enamel to break down stains into progressively smaller particles. This process will penetrate but not harm or damage the tooth enamel, including caps, crowns and veneers. The effect whitens the whole “smile” area of a patient’s teeth.
